The Good Sister

I listened to this one on Scribd and absolutely loved it. Without giving too much away, I think that this book is actually more suited to audio than paper. It was SO, SO GOOD. This is the story of twin sisters Fern and Rose. The book alternates between the perspective of the two women – both, unreliable narrators. Fern does not like to be touched, avoids crowds, bright lights and loud noises as much as possible, living a very structured life. Rose is her rock, her support system. All that Rose wants in the world is to have a baby, but she finds out she can’t get pregnant. Ever the good, helpful sister, Fern decides that she is going to have a baby for Rose – she just needs to find a father. But in the process, she meets Wally, and ends up developing real feelings for him. There are so many layers to this book. It’s dark and twisty but also a little bit heartwarming. It really kept me on my toes and I found myself stretching out my walks and chore time so that I could listen to more of it. Order on or Amazon!
